Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Crepes
What are these crepes made of?
Flour - GF all-purpose flour was used for this recipe, but fine oat flour would work as well. You can also use almond flour for a low carb protein crepe recipe.
AstroFlav Chocolate protein powder - Makes this recipe high-protein and also makes for a nutty and chocolatey taste.
Almond milk - Unsweetened to keep calories and fat low. Extra milk called for in this recipe creates a runny, smooth batter for thin crepes.
Egg - Helps the batter form together and keep the crepes together.
Greek yogurt - Adds additional protein to the filling.
Sweetener of choice - Can use stevia, Monk fruit, honey, etc.. to help sweeten up the Greek yogurt.
TIPS FOR CREATING THESE PROTEIN CREPES
If batter is too thick, slowly add more milk to create a runny batter. This will make the crepes nice and thin.
The recipe does not call for baking powder or baking soda. Don't add into batter as it will make the crepes fluff up like pancakes.
Using a nonstick pan will ensure that crepes spread evenly and don't stick to the pan.
Swirl to spread the batter in a circular motion to create a large circle crepe. This way you will have a thin, foldable crepe.
TOPPING IDEAS FOR THESE HIGH PROTEIN CREPES
Since this recipe only calls for 4 ingredients, you can spruce up the crepes with some of your favorite healthy toppings.
Here are a few ideas:
Berries - strawberries & blueberries
Dried fruit - cranberries, blueberries, apricots, etc...
